I Don't Know What I Did?????????

When I woke up this morning, my left hip was screaming!!!!! I have osteoarthritis and bursitis in it and have been treating it since the end of October. I have been taking an anti-inflammatory, using Voltaren Cream topically over the hip, and have gone to a Physical Therapist for exercises which will strengthen my core to take some of the stress off of my hip and spine. I have been trying to think of what I might have done to bring on the pain, and the only thing I can think of is the fact that we had snow storms all weekend with a drop in temperature, which can trigger more arthritic pain.
So........this morning, I spent an hour doing the core exercises and will spend another hour doing them tonight, and hopefully the stretching that goes along with them will help with the pain. I will also try alternating heat and ice treatments. Any other ideas?
I also have both of my Grand-daughters late this afternoon and for supper and the evening, so I had better be able to move quickly and last for at least 4 hours.........Wish me the
